Pictures of a Galaxy Note 5 prototype leaked online, is the S Pen debate settled then?

There is no shortage of leaks when it comes to new Samsung devices and the Galaxy Note 5 is getting the same treatment, we’ve already seen multiple leaked photos and renders of the upcoming handset. Today pictures of a Galaxy Note 5 prototype have been leaked online and while they don’t reveal much about the device that we don’t already know, they do offer a new perspective about the S Pen ejection mechanism that has been the subject of much debate these past few weeks.
